Innovate UK’s Young Innovators programme, which includes annual awards for young people with creative and ground-breaking business ideas and a high-profile #IdeasMeanBusiness campaign, is a partnership with the Prince’s Trust, with activities delivered by KTN and Innovate UK Edge.

The aim of this competition is to find a new group of young innovators that can turn their great ideas into successful businesses. In 2021/22, the Young Innovators programme will award 32 people from diverse backgrounds with a £5,000 grant, one-on-one business coaching and an allowance to cover living costs! Read more here.
